Welcome to this month’s issue of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, a collection of blog posts submitted by some of the organizing consultants who enjoy reading Your Organizing Business. I’m so thrilled to be hosting this monthly feature, and I hope you’ll take some time to read the various posts and get to know some of your fellow organizers.

As usual, we have an interesting variety of topics this month.

Home and Family

Terry shares some easy tips to get you and your clients thinking about Preparing For Disaster, explaining that

  • Parents Need to Stay Involved
  • Make Homework Routine
  • Use Tools Wisely
  • Teach Time Management
  • Teach Project Management
  • Help Them Find Their Own Way

Personal and Professional Development

In How to Manage the Chaos of Transformation, Alex Fayle explains that

Angela Esnouf describes The Journey to Expert, saying

I’m thrilled to be granted Expert accreditation and happy to share what got me there.

Organizing

In What’s In Your Memory Box? Creating an Organized Home for Your Prized Possessions, Lisa Montanaro shares her tip on dealing with personal memorabilia, and says,

A Memory Box is a great tool to use with a client that wants to save sentimental items, and get them in one place. And yes, even us organizers have Memory Boxes too! 🙂

Lelah Baker-Rabe answers the question, Who needs a professional organizer? with a few warning signs that someone might be prone to overbuying and need some professional help.

Janet Baker gives us 5 Ways to Deal with Paper using The Paper Tiger filing software.
